Armenian Nutmeg Cake

This Armenian Nutmeg Cake is a caramel flavoured cake with a hint of nutmeg and has a crunch from the nuts. The cake consists of a chewy/crunchy biscuit base, moist fluffy cake, and a crunchy caramel topping. It is sooo easy and so delicious and is a huge hit with my family!! It is a nice change from the usual flavoured cakes!!

I had a few trial and errors making this cake. The nuts can burn pretty easily in the oven, so keep it on the lowest rack. I found it was best at 150 degrees to toast the nuts to get a smokiness and crunch, but not burn them. It also bakes it into a really fluffy and moist cake!!

I hand chopped the nuts as I like a chunkier consistency, however you can always use a low speed/a few seconds in your Thermomix to chop them.
